Wind-up

Memories are what warm you up from the inside. But they're also what tear you apart.” Haruki Murakami (Kafka on the Shore)
 

The premiere of a new choreography by Václav Kuneš in collaboration with musician and performer Amos Ben-Tal. Kuneš once again delivers a dynamic piece, contemporary dance full of energy, a torrent of images and action.

Kunes, Vaclav

420PEOPLE are Nataša Novotná and Václav Kuneš.

Both of them are linked together by one of the most prestigious dance companies in the world, the Netherlands Dans Theatre –

a place, where the intensive collaboration with world leading choreographers and artist comes to its peak.
Their dream and intentions are to "use" the years on the top of the dance world, subsequently presenting as much of this top within the Czech Republic and, furthermore sharing these experiences with Czech dancers and Czech spectators.

At the turn of the year 2007, Václav Kuneš and Nataša Novotná founded a new dance company in Prague: they named it 420PEOPLE. In the very first year of the company´s existence, Václav created the choreography Small Hour which has become successful both in the Czech Republic and abroad. In the Czech Republic the piece was awarded The Sazka and Theatre Journal Prize and it was selected as the best achievement in the domain of dance and ballet in 2008. As far as its success abroad is concerned, it was selected for the programme DansClick which allowed 420PEOPLE for a two months tour around the Netherlands. For her performance in the piece Nataša Novotná was awarded the prestigious Thálie Prize 2008 in the Czech Republic.

In 2008, Václav presented two new pieces: On an Even Keel and a dynamic trio Golden Crock. Inspired by the emergence and development of jazz music, in the spring of 2009, Václav created his first full evening choreography Ghost Note in the production of the Netherlands Station Zuid. At the end of the same year he presented his second full evening choreography, this time produced by 420PEOPLE and Korzo Theater, A Small hour ago. At the gala-closing of TANEC PRAHA 2009 festival, Nataša Novotná was awarded the Dancer of the Year prize.

A very special part of the company’s repertory was B/olero, a piece choreographed by Ohad Naharin: thus 420PEOPLE became the only ensemble in the world allowed to perform the piece, besides Naharin’s home company Batsheva. The company has also been a success during its tour around Europe (France, Spain).

Parcours

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
